A few weeks ago, my husband's aunt had sent me a link on Facebook for a crocheted Owl hat. She asked if I could make it for her young daughter? Then, she said that her daughter would absolutely love it if I did.
Well, I explained to her that the hat was a crochet pattern & not a knitting pattern and I didn't crochet, at least, not on purpose. But, I was inspired to go to Ravelry in search of a knitted Owl Hat pattern. I found Owl Hat by Julie Grimmett and I liked the hat so much that I wanted to make some finger-less Owl Mitts to go with it. I found Who's owl mitts by Mareike Neumann. This was such a fun knit. I like knitting cables.
I used Red Hearts Soft Yarn in Charcoal & size 8 needles & I knitted both the hat & the mitts by Magic Loop.
I want to point out that the buttons were re-purposed. A very close friend mine gave me a huge tin of buttons that her Mother had collected throughout the years. I was very honored to have these buttons.
